. >> stephanie: right. new surveys in which obama held a solid lead in ohio, eight point lead in wisconsin, but romney aids insisted things are on the right track. >> of course she didn't. of course we are. of course we are on the right wrack. >> stephanie: we feel we are in a very good place and this race is exactly where we wanted to be. and their political director said right now their firewalls are burning. >> firewalls don't burn they prevent burning from getting through. >> i assumed there was a wall of fire. [ mocking laughter ] >> oh, my god. >> stephanie: there has been little movement since his first debate surge. several pollsters are suggesting that mitt romney is claiming the polls are wrong across the board. i imagine mitt romney -- is he still collecting unneeded canned goods at this point? that the red cross -- not specifically we don't need that please don't send that. >> yeah. ♪ there are all kinds of goods, canned goods, vacuum packed on your grocery's shelve ♪ ♪ in the value of the giant douche bag ♪ [ laughter ] >> stephanie: back with sexy l
, president obama. right now in ohio. and he is in springfield, ohio, i think. and as i say he's all of our president, but he's your boss as a member of the cabinet. let's hear what he has to say. >> probable journey for more than two centuries and it's also guided us and carried us through the trials and tribulations of the last four years. in 2008 we were in the middle of two wars and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. today, our businesses have created 5.5 million new jobs and this morning we learned companies hired more workers in october than any time in the last eight months. the american auto industry is back on top. home values, housing starts are on the rise. we're less dependent on foreign oil than any time in the last 20 years. because of the service and sacrifice of our brave men and women in uniform the war in iraq is over, the war in afghanistan is ending, al qaeda has been decimated, osama bin laden is dead. [ applause ] >> we're on the move, ohio. we've made real progress these last four years. the reason all of you are here today, the reason i'm here toda
competitive under five points so while it does narrowly favor president obama right now, keep in mind, these are all very competitive states, three, four points. >> woodruff: and, margaret, to that point and the point you were making a minute ago, what is it that the obama folks feel they ndto in the final days? >> if today is a road map for the next few days, what they feel they need to do is return to the high ground, so to speak. today you did not here a lot of rom indonesia, you heard a lot of "look at the storm, this is what we can do -- romnesia" we need to hold hands and buckle down. they want that to be the message and for president obama to be able to close the final days of this race with him saying i'm your president and i will continue to be a president and bring everyone together. he would love to return to th hope and change message. he hasn't been able to do so in recent weeks because they were playing from a weakened position. this allows them make that transition and they'll take it. >> woodruff: well, we hear you both. you guys will be watching from now until electi
consumption and noted not only president obama's position on climate change, but also on s woman's right to choose and marriage equality as evidence of a vision different from that of mitt romney. the news came as the president returned to the campaign trail, stopping first in green by, wisconn. he revived his own slogan of 2008 to question mitt romney's ideas. >> governor romney has been using a his talents as a salesman to dress up these very same poalcies that failed ourha country so badly, the very same policies we've been cleaning up after for the past four years. and he is offering them up change. ( laughter ) he's... he's saying he's the candidate of change. well, let me tell you, wisconsin, we know what change looks like. ( cheers and applause ) and what the governor's offering sure ain't change. >> woodruff: polls currently give the president a slight edge in wisconsin. but nationally, they are mostly dead even. romney spent his day in virginrga tied state, telling a crowd in roanoke, that the president is clueless when it comes to business.a >> and so we came up with an idea la
's unfair, but that's what sticks in people's minds. >> in your mind, has president obama made the right move, wrong move? what do you think? >> i think he has made the appropriate move here. he hasn't been too over. that's the key here. you can't be overtly political in how you respond to these kinds of disasters. he obviously will accrue some benefits because he's acting aas commanders in chief are supposed to act and help people on a broad basis. as the remarks of governor christie of new jersey proved, this is a -- he gets bipartisan support out of this disaster. that has to help the bottom line come election day. >> of course, he hasn't been -- president obama wanted to fit in one last campaign paerps in florida, then hurriedly flew back because he realized he couldn't make it back to washington because the storm was coming. so he hasn't acted perfectly along this path, right? >> well, that's true. he has a number of surrogates and i understand bill clinton will be picking up a number of campaign appearances on the campaign trail. so that is going to help matters. president obama ca
just before the storm. right? that was colin powell. president obama today actually released an ad highlighting the colin powell endorsement. >> will you endorse president obama? >> yes. when he took over, we were in one of the worst recessions we had seen in recent times. close to a depression. and i saw over the next several years stabilization come back in the financial community. housing is starting to pick up. the president saved the auto industry, and the actions he has taken with respect to protecting us from terrorism have been very, very solid. >> the reason colin powell's was the most eagerly anticipated endorsement of this election is because his endorsement of barack obama in 2008 was seen as being a consequential thing in terms of the obama lead over mccain in '08 and how the election was going to turn out. also more importantly, colin powell is probably the single republican in the country who has the most gravitas and credibility with crossover voters, independent voters and with generally speaking nonideological people who admire his leadership and his judgment. eve
's go to president obama right now. president obama: i just received a full briefing from our emergency response team at as well as fema and other agencies helpful in response and recovery efforts in the department of energy, department of transportation, the department of homeland security and the department of health and human services. obviously everybody is aware this point that this will be a big and powerful storm. all across eastern seaboard everybody is taking the appropriate preparations. i've spoken to all the governors in all these states, they have issued emergency declarations. they have been turned around quickly in the white house. we have pre-positioned assets so fema personnel are working closely with state and local governments making sure the food and water and emergency generation is available for those communities that will be hardest hit. we anticipate that the center of the storm will hit landfall sometime this evening, but because of the nature of this storm, we are certain that this is going to be a slow-moving process through a wide swath of the country. billio
. >> i want them to be sure to vote for the right person, mitt romney or obama, either or. >> reporter: the board of elections here expected by now, they have about 20,000 people who voted. instead, 35,000 weigh more than they expected. >>> president obama returned to the campaign trail today after touring the devastation from hurricane sandy. the big question now, will sandy affect the election? with more on the candidates' final pushes and early voting, we turn to wisdom martin with this week's campaign u. >> reporter: the topic this week, we're going to discuss with the professor and students, how much did the impact of superstorm sandy have or will it have on the election? professor, what is it going to do to the elect, if anything? >> five days before the election, the final lasting impressions are very, very important. what you have is devastation, president acting in charge solving problems but you have powerful imagery. americans are turned off by the hyperpartisanship. you have president obama and chris christie examining the damage, talking with each other and working togethe
, that is in part a disadvantage for president obama, but it's too hard to say right now. >> hogan, governor romney is continuing that cam taken to go forward in states not impacted by hurricane sandy. it was really interesting, joe scarborough and his observations this morning he made on "morning joe." take a listen. >> this was mitt romney's best weekend, and it stops. the momentum stops. you don't know how it freezes, but it's a new dynamic into the race and changes everything with with a week to go. >> let's talk about this. not only could this stall romney's momentum, but it also brings up something that mitt romney was forceful about during the primary debates. he sad voe indicated shutting down team na and letting states handle disaster relief. watching what's taking place with sandy, know we have 12 different states that declared states of emergency and also the district, washington, d.c., does this pose a problem for mitt romney if he gets questioned on his belief about fema and tries to go to some places to look presidential post-sandy, is that an issue for him? >> that's a great point, t
't think obama plus four is the right number in ohio and here is why. >> bill: what was your number by the way? >> we had it tied. 47, 47. suffolk listed all the candidates on the ballots. a couple of things of on those polls that i noticed. number one cuyahoga county was weighted at 13%. the truth about cuyahoga county from 2004 to 2008 the total votes cast in ohio went up 100,000 if you add up all the candidates but in cuyahoga county, between 2004 and 2008 which was a big year for barack obama, cuyahoga county casted less ballots in the election in 2008 than 2004. the relative strength of cuyahoga has dropped to 11% north 13%. >> bill: that's very favorable to barack obama. that's the cleveland area. so, if they are weighting that in a heavy way. >> at 13% instead of 11%. >> bill: it's reality that the vote is dropping there. it's going to be better for romney. >> true. >> bill: do you trust rasmussen, larry? you are pretty outspoken about these polls. remember, scott was on it the last time and the time before that scott hit it right between the eyes. >> no, i know scott quite w
supporting barack obama. and that's got to hurt. >> all right. thank you so much. i really appreciate y'all coming on. we'll see you in the next few days. thank you. >>> and developing news right now that we just referenced, janet napolitano is on the ground right now in new york city as major problems persist after hurricane sandy. lines two miles long just to get gas. >>> and we're told within the last hour, there's a four-hour traffic jam in the lincoln tunnel. we'll get a live update for you. >>> plus, congressman todd akin was abandoned by the national gop establishment over his, quote, legitimate rape comments. but now akin is putting hundreds of thousands of dollars into a major ad blitz. the question is where is the money coming from? it is just one of the things we thought you should know, and you can joinous conversation on twitter. you can find us @tamronhall and @newsnation. [ lisa ] my name's lisa, and chantix helped me quit. i honestly loved smoking, and i honestly didn't think i would ever quit. [ male announcer ] along with support, chantix is proven to help people quit
on the track that we are on. president obama: i'm barack obama and... i approve this message. >>> right now, more than 1,000 dominion crews are on their way to new jersey. they are going help restore power to the hundreds of thousands of people still in the dark after sandy. the workers know they have a tough task ahead of them. their mission is rewarding. >> most of the customer base is extremely grateful. we do der i've a lot out of that. it's fantastic. hopefully, we'll run into the same thing up there. i'm sure we will. we are there to help. >> it isn't clear how long the crews will be gone. they will be working gruelling hours while they are away. they will work shifts of at least 12 hours. >> we are getting a look at the damage from sandy. take a look at these before and after satellite photos in new jersey. the storm is believed to have caused $50 billion in damages. so far, it's claimed 92 live, 11 in virginia. many businesses are without power, it's down from a peak of 8.5 million. getting around new york is just about impossible. many in new york and new jersey trying to drive the
it will be sunny, seeing that blanket of fog. 60s and 70s. >>> 7:15. new this morning, president obama right now is heading back to washington, d.c. he canceled a florida campaign appearance this morning because of the approaching hurricane sannie. >> scott macfarland is out on the streets of washington, d.c. to show us -- to show us how the storm is affecting the federal government and president obama's schedule. >> and dave, this seping news, the white house says the president has canceled tomorrow's appearance in green bay, wisconsin to stay here in d.c. and monitor this storm, d.c., the nation's capital, is a ghost town. let's take a look at the president hopping on a plane. he knows what it sit -- what is sitting -- what is hitting here. the rains already coming down heavy. they will get heavier as the afternoon moves along. the administrator of fema talking about how they are preparing this morning. >> pennsylvania, flooding and we've been moving stuff into position. because power outages are likely to top the million- dollar mark. the u.s. -- is announcing closures. >>> the supreme court
genuinely believe this is a guy who wants to do right by his people. barack obama, you're seeing a human being there. and the camera doesn't lie. obviously, will this weigh an election -- obviously, it leans clearly for obama, but what i love about this is what you see with these guys is the same what you see with the guys in the streets of hoboken that were affected. i believe people are overwhelmingly are tremendously decent including politicians, and you're seeing that. >> is it too cynical to read all this in? let's be clear. analysis is happening within the washington political bubble. but i think if you're watching on television, you're seeing chris christie doing what he has to do for his state and the president doing what a president does, arriving in a disaster zone offering consolation but also his federal help. >> yeah. that's all true. but it does have a political impact. it's not unreasonable to say what are the politics in terms of the impact after this? but one of the most corrosive things about washington in the last 8, 12 years has been the permanent campaign. and we in
right now shows president obama ahead by two and in nevada president obama ahead by 2.7. then later in the night at 11:00 p.m. and then 1:00 a.m., we'll have california, hawaii, idaho, oregon, washington, and then the last poll closing in alaska. unless this is a very strange night, those races will be interesting for governors races and senate and house races and state issues, but not necessarily for the presidency. unless things go very, very digital differently than expected to go. this is how your election viewing is going to unfold hour by hour on tuesday night. if you just exclude the states for the presidential race where everybody pretty much knows exactly how it's going to go and just the states where there is some question as to what's going to happen, here is a clip and save thing for you about these states. the battlegrounds. all right? states that you know are going to be important and everybody thinks they're going to be close. these are the states everybody is going to be watching on tuesday night. each of these states, as you know, has a top elections official. and e
. >> the unions in ohio is why obama's strong right now. >> show me by hand, how many of you voted for him in 2008? how many of you are definitely voting for him in 2012? what the hell happened? >> the promises weren't met. what we got is not what we thought we were going to get in 2008. >> i'm disappointed because he didn't do what he said he would do. but i'm not sure i like the alternative. >> who is leaning towards barack obama? who is leaning towards mitt romney? is romney in touch with you all? >> no. >> no. why not? tell me why not? >> romney is more focused on big business. >> if they find something and bring it against him, all of a sudden he changes his tune. i didn't say that. that's not what i meant. >> does obama understand you? >> i think barack obama grew up middle class or lower middle class. i think he can relate. i think that mitt romney always grew up wealthy. i think he relates to everything that we stand for. i mean, women's rights, children, raising children. he's a family man. that is how, i think, women -- why women like obama. is he a family man. he's been there with us. a
and months of clean-up and getting everything going again. it's just one day at a time. >> all right, susan mcginnis live in delaware, thank you. >>> and we are just learning that president obama has announced that he is going to travel tomorrow to new jersey to survey some of the damage there. >> indeed. >>> meanwhile, millions of people from maine to the carolinas are without power and east coast utility companies are calling on other states for a little bit of help. >> various agencies in california are now sending people out east. cbs 5 reporter elissa harrington is at sfo for an update on the response as well as continuing flight cancellations. >> reporter: several california agencies are responding, others on standby with you one problem that rescuers and travelers have having today, more cancellations to those cities that need help the most. >> i been sleeping on that little sofa over there. >> reporter: tommy is among thousands of stranded travelers waiting out sandy in an airport. he is trying to get back to new york where he is a grad student and doesn't want to miss class. he spe
that the quinnipiac poll is right about ohio, then the obama explanation of why they're going into these states is more credible. >> these states being michigan and pennsylvania. >> which is not oh, my god, the sky is falling, we're losing everywhere, we need to play a lot of defense, but rather, you know, they can't win ohio, so they're looking for another place. so we've got enough money to make sure that nothing goes wrong. the president's not going to win these battleground states by the same margins he won last time. there's some natural tightening. most of these states elected republican governors two years ago. >> two years ago. >> and so the president would be happy winning these states by two or three points. >> michigan, 2 1/2 points. this is one of these states that we republicans stopped expecting to win when ronald reagan retired. you usually put it in the pennsylvania category. do you believe mitt romney's within the margin of error in michigan? >> i tend to think -- i tend to give the benefit of the doubt to good polls. >> that's a good poll. >> that is a fine poll. i'm intereste
your vote for romney because you're upset at obama, right? n no. i think there is a case to be made against obama. there is also a case to be made for romney. mitt romney, i have to say, among the republicans in the field, i am a democrat, but among the republicans in the primary field, romney was the only one who i thought was in the end, could be a credible alternative to obama. but as we've gotten closer, i think romney is much better than merely a credible alternative. i think his policies are sound. i think he's got a real idea how to create jobs. the other thing i like about him is that there is not a hint of scandal in this man's life. neither in his personal life, nor his career. this is an honest man full of integrity and it will be nice to have that in the white house. >> gretchen: when i interviewed hi and ann together three years ago issues they said to me then, you will never read about us in the tabloids, ever. they said it am fatticcally. listen to ryan and romney as they seem to be talking about hope and change. imagine that. >> this is a turfing point for america th
position it's a rally if romney wins and a slight gain if obama wins. >> exactly right. corporate america leaner, meaner, healthier than ever before. making $105 a share. even if it were to come off a little bit, the multiple is an indictment on the lack of pro-growth policies. you'll get maybe 15 multiple if you get an obama election. romney, look for a 20 multiple. >> okay. john, i gather you're not worried about the effects of hurricane sandy. you're saying between the fourth quarter and first quarter, we will get back whatever we lost and then maybe some. >> yeah, i think so p. >> we're talking 2%, 2.5%. destroying bridges doesn't create jobs. >> i think we'd all agree when i look into the tone of the discussion, we're talking about moderate growth. 1.5% to 2% growth. we're really not talking about back to 3% to 4% growth. and i would say we really need to resolve these uncertainties about affordable care health care, we need to -- dodd-frank, the bush tax cuts. a lot of policy uncertainty whether that needs to be resolved before we move the economy forward.uncertaintywheto be resolve
see him getting it right there. both romney and president obama spoke with rubio and, of course, expressed their concern and support for his daughter and his family. >> brian: all right. is this terrorism 101? new york university president requiring her students to plot a terrorist attack for a homework assignment. the professor asked her students to write up 15 pages describing how they would attack the city and what the aftermath would be like, for example, how much it would cost us. former naval criminal investigator says it prepares students for a career in intelligence. but some police officers are calling it an insult to those who died in 9-11. remember, khalid sheikh mohammed was on campus learning about america and plotting against america and so was al-awlaki. >> gretchen: ban on halloween, a number of schools and towns are putting a stop to halloween plans. over the past years, a dozen schools are doing away with costume, parties, other celebrations. you might be asking what would the reason be? some say it's because students can't afford to participate. there are some
sandy is doing right now. sandy forced the presidential candidates to make big changes. president obama made his changes on the fly. canceling a campaign event in florida around returning to the white house. mitt romney held a rally in iowa and canceled events tonight and tomorrow. "special report" from washington up and down the atlantic coast starts at 6:00. now back to a wet new york and "the five." >> eric: this is a fox news weather alert. hurricane sandy, the latest. get team tropical storm rick leventhal and steve harrigan, but first to janice dean. >> we should see landfall from the system in minutes. over the next 20 minutes to 30 minutes as it continues its northwestern progression. 28 miles per hour. so this storm has sped up. the result are the same. we'll still see the incredible storm surge, record storm surge along the long island sound, delaware bay. you can see as we zoom in, i will show you where the centersy. 's just right offshore. perhaps making landfall around cape may southern new jersey coastline. but again, we are dealing with the incredible effects already. win
of convenience. the enemy of my enemy is my friend. right now, barack obama is their biggest enemy. they're tolerating mitt romney. they already assume mitt romney is on the wrong side of every issue including this one. i don't think this flip-flop affects them. they hate romney and obama more. that's all that matters until the day after the election when we'll see them turn on romney in a big way. [ laughter ] >> jennifer: you mean when he loses. right? >> absolutely. >> jennifer: okay. >> they'll turn on him. >> jennifer: either way. >> right now they're pretending to like him but that's not going to last after he's a loser. >> jennifer: so there is the daily kos blog post today that actually talks about what disaster relief would be like in romney's world this, in fact, he were to push it down to the private sector. let's say that romney gets elected. what would a privatized fema look like? >> there's two possibilities. they're both complete disasters. the first would be to actually truly privatize it. you pay for pr
your neighbors who have not voted. >> stand right here in this denver neighborhood on that obama application we downloaded you can see a flag showing the location of the undecided voters. once the house is located, campaign workers move in and pinpoint the target. once inside, the undecided voters are gently persuaded to choose a candidate and make a decision. [ laughter ]
obama and... i approve this message. >>> right now, we are following breaking news on news 4 midday. a 15-year-old is dead after being struck by a car walking to school. it happened around 7:00 this morning near the intersection of germantown road. police say the tenth grader at seneca valley high school was walking to school when the teen was hit by the car. the driver did stay at the scene. police are investigating what caused the accident. >>> right now, president obama is preparing to head to new jersey to see some of the devastation sandy left behind. he just made an unscheduled visit to fema's headquarters to see how they are handling the disaster. this afternoon, he'll tour the areas of new jersey hardest hit with the governor, chris christie. >>> flights are starting to get off the ground this morning after two days of thousands of cancellations caused by sandy. chances are, you'll need plenty of patience if you are trying to leave town. megan mcgrath has been on this taking a look at things at reagan national airport. >> reporter: sandy may be out of here. things are far fr
grapevine. civil rights icon who gave benediction at president obama inauguration says he believes all white people are going tohill. 91-year-old reverend joseph laurie told a group of obama supporters in georgia he is frightened by the level of hatred and bitterness coming out of the election. monroe county reporter writes "laurie said when he was a young militant he used to say all white folks were going to hell. then he mellowed and just said most of them were. now he said he is back to where he was." laurie attacked those black georgians who did not vote in the 2008 election. and criticized the national anthem as too militaristic. lowery is expected to give a news conference on the topic on friday. >>> who women in dominican republic claim new jersey democratic senator menendez paid them for sex. they told the "daily caller" senator agreed to pay them $500 apiece and only paid them $100. menendez tells geraldo rivera that story is false, absolutely false and contrived. finally, if you have noticed, a lot more jokes about romney than president obama on late night tv, now there are numbers
. in that case ground game is crucial. i think you're right in ohio ground game is going to favor obama. i think the only silver lining is that in 2008 obama won 22 of ohio's 88 counties making it clear that the population battle over the cities is really what's important. so having the political offices all over the state might not actually be the determining factor, but i think -- look, i'll be honest. i have ohio going blue in my electoral map. >> look, it's creditical to oba and the campaign they win this ground game. you see evidence in the polls of republicans on the whole are more motivated to throw out barack obama than democrats on the whole are to re-elect him. that doesn't mean there aren't lots of motivated democrats out there. they yell at me on twitter. you get over 90% from republicans a lot. it's not that high from democrats. you know what makes me think of micha michael dukakis? everything. ohio in particular. something interesting in ohio and to understand you have to think p about the dukakis lae election in 1988. this was a 40-state landslide for george bush sr. in 1988. in t
years of obama. wow. you see folks on the left dismissing the value of this. on the right they'll make a big deal about it. i came upon a fun study from 2008. brown university economists found that when moderate papers endorse they're seen as mort credible. when a partisan paper does it, not so much. when the chicago sun times and "denver post" endorsed kerry and bush, the study found 3% of readers switched voting allegiance. they flipped their allegiances in 2000. i have to say, i think an interesting number that matters is when you compare the endorsement numbers, obama has 34 endorsement from major, significant papers. romney has 27. look at the circulation of those endorsements. obama's total just over 9 million readers. >> 27? >> and mitt romney is at 27 and not 7. his total circulation just under 5 million. so i don't know that this is a scientific reading of those numbers, but you have to imagine 9 million readers reading obama endorsement, 5 million readers reading romney. i have to imagine that ends up as a net plus for obama somewhere down the line. let's just quickly ask "de
chris christie has done the right thing, and barack obama is president, you do not' to overdue the praise. but, i mean, you are right, a photo of barack obama with governor chris christie goes a long way. he is liked by a lot of independents in the united states i think that, i don't believe that storm will make people decide. one way or the another whether they are for obama or romney, it gets back to the economy. and you know what would hurt, president obama, is if stock market tanked -- there is that. neil: i wish we had more time, rolling stone article, getting talk that president comment i'll cut to initial calling mitt romney, a bis bs 'er, were you struck by that? seemed out of character for a president we're told does not curse that much. a lot of republicans that look at that as well say, well, it takes one to know one. >> i was in oval office interviewing the president, after we left that is when it happened much he is telling the story, he may have been trying to be a little bit hip for rolling stone. this past week he did not just rolling stone but mtv, and things m
. >> right. it certainly has shifted. maria, very quickly, if you were running the obama campaign where would you go, what would you be doing? a lot of people have said he needs to start belting it out again and getting that sore throat that he had at the end of 2008. >> i think he'll probably end up with that sore throat on tuesday night, but i also think exactly what they're doing -- look, bill clinton wherever they can get him. and going to all of the swing states wherever they can get him. i think more importantly, to actually show real people. in ohio, to have all of the auto workers whose jobs have been saved by the president's rescue of the auto industry, in sharp contrast with what mitt romney wanted to do, which was to let the industry go bankrupt and also in sharp contrast with the absolutely flat-out deceiving ads that mitt romney is running in ohio right now, where he even had to have the ceo of gm and the ceo of chrysler come out to say that they're lies and that he needs to cut it out. i think in ohio, such an important state for mitt romney where the president is leading right
